SANTA CLARA, CA — This month, the Santa Clara Convention Center partnered with Levy Convention Centers, which will serve as the Spectra-managed facility’s official dining and hospitality experiences provider. The Santa Clara Convention Center and Levy will work together over the coming months to craft menus, dining concepts and catering experiences. Produce will be sourced from Silicon Valley and the South Bay farmers and purveyors, and Santa Clara and San Jose restaurants will be represented onsite. In addition, Levy’s culinary team, along with its technology and analytics subsidiary E15 Group, will utilize consumer insights to curate menus and hospitality experiences.
“We are excited to begin a strategic partnership with Levy at the Santa Clara Convention Center,” said Kelly Carr, General Manager for Spectra. “We look forward to showcasing the Santa Clara Convention Center as a local flavor destination that transforms the client’s and attendee’s event experience.”
“People around the world know Santa Clara and Silicon Valley as centers for innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Cindy van Rensburg, Division President of Levy Convention Centers. “That spirit will guide everything we do. We’ll blend advanced hospitality technology with warm service and fresh ideas that take advantage of the South Bay’s wealth of culinary talent and fresh, vibrant flavors.”
